Ard Wiki talk:List of 1000 basic words
I've copied this list verbatim (and wikified) to Wiktionary:en:Wiktionary:List of 1000 basic English words. It might be a useful minimum words list for getting new Wiktionaries off the ground, too. — Hippietrail 15:12, 2 Dec 2004 (UTC)
- Yes, especially words that would not have an Wikipedia article. I did a few but they got lost in an edit conflict. Just make sure that the word is on the Simple Wiktionary first. --Peterdownunder (talk) 01:21, 26 August 2009 (UTC)

Anyone fancy fixing this? For whatever reason I can't log in...
All red links are now done. However in many cases links to words on Simple Wikipedia are not the best possible link. For example to link am does not give its normal use, eg, "I am going to bed". This would be better linked to Wiktionary so you get this: am. The "A"s have been checked, and I am slowly moving through the other letters.--Peterdownunder (talk) 00:10, 26 July 2013 (UTC)
Only 998 Words not 1000
The title suggests that it is a list of 1000 basic words but there are only 998 words, I may be nitpicking, but thought you guys should know.
"a" and "an"
"a" points to an article on the letter A and "an" points to the wictionary entry. Seeing as letters of the alphabet don't really belong on this page and this is the only instance of one I saw upon skimming, either "a" should direct to the wiktionary or both should direct to "Article". Is this page special or protected in some way? I only edit rarely and can't seem to do it in this case.
